good as always

Wine exchange is a very consistent restaurant. Its good dishes are always good. Creativity on new dishes is lacking a bit. They know what they do well. They need to do new things for regulars to keep coming back.

My wife and I come here many times during the year. We love the ambience and the food is very delicious. We come here for special occasions and casual dining experiences and are never disappointed. I've tried many different things on the menu and have yet to be disappointed. It can be upscale but if you go for lunch assured... More

We sat outside for lunch in July, which is crazy in Florida. But they have fans blowing on the back patio and it was really very nice. We both enjoyed some great flavored iced teas. Unique and delicious menu options. Hope to try some of the wine next time. Highly recommend!

A fun place to meet a friend for a glass of wine and a bite to eat! Their famous chicken salad is always delicious as is their Quiches. They have a wide variety of Wines to choose from, and their desserts are also yummy!

Our second trip here. Love the neighborhood & free parking. The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere and service is excellent. Food was good but not quite as much so as the first time.

I recently visited Tampa from NYC for a family event. It was also restaurant week! My cousin recommended The Wine Exchange through a friend. We thoroughly enjoyed the selections. I had the chicken marsala and chocolate dessert. It was amazing! We also tried the flavored martinis. It was such a nice atmosphere and we didnt feel rushed. Our server dione... More

The menu was diverse and the food and service was good. My only knock is the pricing. Everything seemed to be 20% more than anywhere else in the area as some sort of filter. $7 drafts of local brews is pricing to make people feel good about their incomes and has nothing to with location or quality. Nothing special, but... More

I love this place. Really good food. The Classico Carbonara and Baked Brie was the best of the night.

We go there regularly as we can walk from our home. The food is consistent, sometimes the menu can be dated, but the food is always good. We love their cheese plates, order one every time, but the last time we ordered it, they were obviously not prepared to deliver it, so rather than tell us they couldn't accommodate the... More
